We got another complaint, this makes three, I hope they don't kick us out :(

I posted b4 about this whole complaint thing, asking what I can do 2 keep my daughter quiet and I tried the suggestions you all gave me, and (I think) she's getting better, but apparently its not good enough because we got another complaint today, I really hope the leasing office manager will let us stay, im worried about what will happen now. The woman that lives beneath us came 2 our door personally and complained 2 us threatening 2 call the cops, and she said she will be telling the leasing manager in the morning about it. NOTE: The lady who lives underneath us also works in the leasing office she is currently on a leave of absence

  • Is she pounding on the walls or jumping around or screaming all day? If not, they really cannot kick you out, and if they try to, you need to get a lawyer.

  • I saw your posts the other night, you know.

    Could you see if there's another apartment you can move to in the same building? Maybe if you move out from above this lady who seems hyper sensitive to kids, you'll be okay. Talk to the leasing manager about it. Maybe even suggest swapping apartments with someone else who has the same layout and rent and NO kids. If you go to the leasing manager with an attitude of "lets solve this, and not blame" he might be really helpful.

    He doesn't want to have to deal with complaints, but also doesn't want to lose a tenant (you).

  • Make it your priority to find out what rights you have under the housing laws in your state. Also review your lease carefully to be sure you aren't in violation. If all three complaints came from the same person instead of different tenents it sounds more like a personal problem. Do not open your door to her again. That is harrassment and making threats. Unless your child is screaming at the top of her lungs all day and night it seems she doesn't have much of a leg to stand on.
